Malka Ann Older's Second Centenal Cycle Book, Null States, Gets Official Cover And Synopsis

I think it is safe to say that I started enjoying cyberpunk through Eoin Colfer, especially on his Supernaturalist book... and could the Artemis Fowl books be considered as well? Working in the IT industry makes me long for stories that have somethings to do with my field as they triggered the techie spirit animal in me.

Malka Older's Infomocracy is a breakthrough hit on this field and it's a no brainer to not even/at least consider reading it. One would almost think it is a stand alone novel and what a delight it is to discover that it will have a sequel called Null States.

Check out the cover of Null States (Centenal Cycle #2) by Malka Older.

The future of democracy is about to implode.

After the last controversial global election, the global infomocracy that has ensured thirty years of world peace is fraying at the edges. As the new Supermajority government struggles to establish its legitimacy, agents of Information across the globe strive to keep the peace and maintain the flows of data that feed the new world order.

In the newly-incorporated DarFur, a governor dies in a fiery explosion. In Geneva, a superpower hatches plans to bring microdemocracy to its knees. In Central Asia, a sprawling war among archaic states threatens to explode into a global crisis. And across the world, a shadowy plot is growing, threatening to strangle Information with the reins of power.
